1.Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Face Scrub Review

Kumkumadi Oils have been raved for its wonderful skin benefits which includes reduction of skin blemishes and pigmentation. But being the person I am, I’m still nervous about using oils on my facial skin. Although it can’t be compared to the oil, this product just came in as a boon for my oily skin giving a way to try out a Kumkumadi product. Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Scrub is basically a cream based scrub containing Kumkumadi(Saffron), Almond, Goat’s Milk and other wonderful ingredients. The scrub feels creamy on the skin and the scrubbing particles are teeny tiny. When used a light hand, it gently exfoliated the skin and sloughed off the dead cells clearing the pores. With a single use, it made my skin visibly brighter, smoother and healthier. It has a pleasant aroma that does not linger post washing. I find the Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Scrub to be an amazing scrub that stays true to its claim of being a brightening scrub. A must try!

2.Kama Ayurveda Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream Review

Kama Ayurveda Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedi Cream is a semi-thick white cream that has an obvious ayurvedic fragrance. The scent is not that bad as compared to some Kama products. As the name suggests, this is a rich cream that is immensely hydrating and moisturizing. It spreads and gets soaked into the skin easily and leaves my skin soft and smooth. As long as I’m in a cool environment, this cream works absolutely fine. It keeps my skin moisturized, smooth and nourished. However the minute I move to a humid/normal temperature, my skin starts perspiring heavily and eventually the cream feels tacky and uncomfortable on the skin. I found this to be an average hydrating cream that would suit only normal to dry skin types.

3.Kama Ayurveda Natural Sun Protection SPF 21 UVA  UVB PA++ Review

By one look of the sunscreen, I could easily tell that this is a zinc oxide based physical sunscreen. The white zinc particles are visibly present in a wax base and upon blending the sunscreen, they fuse together and get absorbed into the skin. The sunscreen has a mild balmy fragrance which isn’t bothering. Upon application, it gives a cooling sensation and feels balmy/waxy on the skin. It leaves a white cast which settles after a while but may look too obvious on medium to dark skin toned. The sunscreen starts to perspire on my nose area and upper lips so I always set it with a powder and then I’m good to go. I used this for about a full week and I didn’t have any new breakouts though this contains butters and is a tad bit heavier on my oily skin. It provides good protection against sun rays and I didn’t face any major tanning with moderate sun exposure. Overall, Kama Ayurveda Natural Sun Protection is a decent physical sunscreen that provides good sun protection. However this is best suited for normal to dry skin types.

4. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water Review

The best from Kama Ayurveda. This was my very first product from the brand and it totally changed my thoughts about rose waters. I did not know that most rose waters available in the market are just water with few drops of rose essential oil until I tried this. This is a steam distilled pure rose water that is made from fresh roses picked up from Kannuj. It smells amazingly beautiful with it’s aroma of fresh roses. When sprayed on the skin, it instantly refreshes and provides a nice toning effect. I’ve used up two bottles of these and I can say this is one of the best rose waters I’ve used so far. This is a highly recommended product. A superior quality rose water that is hard to find in Indian market is what I would say.

5. Kama Ayurveda Nimrah Anti-Acne Face Pack Review

Yet another amazing product. Kama Ayurveda Nimrah Anti-Acne Face pack is a mud mask that emits an earthy aroma. It smells so fresh and pure, as that of wet mud after the first rain. The face mask is reddish brown in color and resembles red sandalwood powder. I mix with water to form a smooth paste and apply evenly using my fingers, you can use a brush if you prefer; But I’m lazy. I like that it does not give any tingling sensation and makes my skin feel totally normal. Sometimes I want my face masks to work without giving any uneasy feel which is why I love this mask. It dries up fast in 10-15 mins, so it isn’t a time consuming mask too. Splashing some water on the face is going to easily rinse off this mask, no rigorous rubbing or massaging is needed. At times when I need some exfoliation, I re-dampen my face and gently scrub in circular motions. Since it’s finely milled, it does not feel harsh or scratchy and rejuvenates the skin. The after effects are really impressive. Post cleansing, I could see my skin to be cleaner, softer and radiant. The most commendable part, this mud mask does not dry out the overall skin yet it calms active acne. It reduces redness and soothes tiny zits too. I found this to be a great product that actually worked in treating my occasional non-cystic acne. Highly recommended for those who are suffering from acne.

6. Kama Ayurveda Bhringadi Intensive Hair Treatment Oil Review

First and foremost, Kama Ayurveda Bhringadi Hair Oil has an attribute which I detest any hair oil to posses. That’s the fragrance, particularly a headache causing one. The hair oil has a strong over the top herbal fragrance which lingers for a minimum of 3 hours. The oil is brownish in color and has a medium consistency, which leans towards the thinner side. Applying it requires no effort and I usually apply it on my scalp prior to washing my hair. The hair oil isn’t too sticky like Castor Oil or lightweight like Mineral Oil, its in between both serving its purpose of providing nourishment to my mane. Post shampooing, it leaves my hair very soft, smooth and nourished. I could easily skip a conditioner as this hair oil deeply conditioned my hair which in turn reduced hairfall that was caused due to breakage. In short, if you can bear strong herbal fragrances, I would recommend trying it. As for hair growth, I can’t comment on it as it requires long term usage.

7. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment Review

I picked this up to see if it works on an age old pigmentation spots on my forearm. Nalpamaradi Thailam is a unique treatment oil power packed with natural herbs in a sesame oil base. This can be used as a de-tanning oil for both face and body. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment is a dark yellow colored oil with a powerful ayurvedic fragrance. The oil, containing turmeric root, is stainable so I had to be careful with the clothes that I wear when using this oil. I applied it every night for 10 days straight, massaging a dollup into my right forearm. The oil is not very heavy and gets soaked into the skin. As recommended, I removed it after 30 minutes with a damp cotton ball. It was fairly easy to wipe off as there wasn’t much oil left on my skin as most of it was absorbed into the skin. May be if you use on your face, you might need a cleanser as the skin on your face is more prone to getting clogged. The initial days, I didn’t find much difference, but as days went by, I could notice a difference on the pigmentation spots. It was gradually disappearing and with continuous usage, it could have removed the pigmentation completely. Sadly the sample I had got over and couldn’t test it further. Nevertheless, every time I used this, it left arms soft and smooth. In all, I’m impressed with this product. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment truly works to remove stubborn pigmentation spots.

8. Kama Ayurveda Mridul Soap Free Cleanser Review

Kama Ayurveda Mridul Soap Free Cleanser

Kama Ayurveda Mridul Soap Free Cleanser is a traditional powder cleanser that needs to mixed with rose water(oily skin) or milk(dry skin). Being a lazy bum, I just use water. The cleanser has an earthy vibe with its greenish color and herbal scent. The powder is not very finely milled bug at the same time it doesn’t feel very abrasive on the skin. I apply the water mixed cleanser all over face and gently massage it for a few seconds and rinse it off. It gets washed off easily. You don’t have the trouble of slippery residue with this, unlike foaming face washes. Just a few splashes of water and you can have the clean and clear skin. The cleanser cleans oils and impurities very well, even though it is soap free. I thoroughly loved using this cleanser. It’s gentle, natural and cleanse the skin without being harsh or stripping moisture from the skin. Although I haven’t noticed much difference on acne and other minor skin issues, as a cleanser this does a good job. I would highly recommend this for those looking for natural cleansers.

Final Thoughts on Kama Ayurveda products

Having used a variety of Kama Ayurveda products, I feel the quality of the products to be top notch. The products do look and feel very Natural, unlike many brands that claim to be natural yet does not feel Natural. The fragrance of Kama Ayurveda products is one of the factors that proves them to be pure and genuine. However, few of these natural formulations didn’t go well with my oily skin and I feel most of their products are catered towards normal to dry skin types especially their creams. And forget not! Kama Ayurveda is a luxury brand so be prepared to spend a bomb if you are going to explore this brand.

That was all about it. I hope you find this post helpful in choosing Kama Ayurveda products. Have you tried their products? Which is your most favourite product from the brand? Share your thoughts.

  3. Nice and honest review. My favorites are the Bhringadi hair oil, Nalpamaradi tailam and their night cream. As you have said, their products are more geared towards dry skin and dry hair like mine 😀

    1. Thanks Archana 🙂 That’s great. I wish they introduce creams that are more suitable for my oily skin!

    Thanks jo aapne itne products ka detailed n honest review kiya ,

  6. I have nalpamaradi oil and brighting night cream for men .I m confuse how can I use both product.kindly reply

    1. If you are particular about using both the products together, you can use the night cream after the Nalpamaradi Oil Treatment. I suppose you are aware that Nalpamaradi oil is to be wiped off and cleansed after half an hour of application. Alternatively you can also use the Nalpamaradi in the mornings and the brightening cream in the nights too.

  7. Thanks .tell me best cream to use in day in Kama ayurveda.

    1. I have only tried the eladi cream which didn’t work out for my oily skin. For men, they have only one day cream. You can try that. Its named Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream. However I do not know if its the best one!!

  8. HI folks, want to share a bitter experience I’ve had with Kama Ayurveda Indigo hair dye. While applying it, the dye dripped over my neck, ears & face and has caused severe bluish black pigmentation of the skin. I’m shocked that something which is marketed as organic and Ayurveda can cause such damage. And when I complained to the customer care, the guy was arrogant enough to say he didn’t care. I’ve even sent them proof of the damage but they have not bothered to reply. I consulted the dermatologist and the only solution is to go in for laser treatment which is costing me a cool 40,000 bucks. It’s not the question of money for me but the betray of trust that you blindly put on to a product which says Organic. So please be careful next time you buy a Kama Ayurveda product. It definitely has side reactions.

  9. i love the rose water toner out of all! it’s the best i’ve used so far.
    i’ve completed almost 10 bottles of it and ready to use more!
    while the moghra and lavender toners are okayish, and that bhringraj oil toh i dint like it that much though i can bear herbal smell.

  10. I use sunscreen, hand cream, rose water, rose Jasmine face cleanser, kumkumadi scrub, lavender patchouli shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer, coconut almond lip balm from kama. And I have tried various soaps and body washes from the same. All the products are excellent except eladi hydrating cream since I have oily skin. I’m very fond of this brand. But also found some pricing issue. Being a malayali I’ve been known about bringadi and nalpamaradi oil for a long time. These products are sold in kerala for 50 rupee for 100 ml. But kama sells this for around 500 which is not at all convincing. Also the consistency, colour and smell of kama bringadi differ from the one I get in kerala. Also they give better results than kama. But thumbs up for rest for the products.

    1. Great to know that you use a bunch of products from Kama Ayurveda. We didn’t really know that Bringadi & Nalpamaradi were available at such low prices. Thanks for throwing an insight on the prices for our readers. Are the cheaper and effective ones available elsewhere apart from Kerala?

  11. Good products..prices are low. I have also tried Skinyoga facce masks. They are very very effective, especially the Skinyoga Almond Orange Face Mask really helped me with my pigmentaiton.

  12. Hi, I went through the blog and I enjoyed reading it. You have mentioned a lot of Natural skin care products and they are good for the skin and I suggest my friends and family members to use such type of products rather than damaging skin by using chemical products and I follow the regime all the time. I too always prefer Ayurvedic products for skin, hair etc. We feel the timing for such products and its offerings is key to addressing a number of issues people face today on a daily basis. From stress to aging to vitamin deficiencies, these problems are caused by natural circumstances and need a solution that also comes from a natural source, and Soultree.in has those answers. Have you ever heard about Soultree India which gives ayurvedic organic skin and beauty care product. The ingredients which they use to make 100% ayurvedic beauty product is from mother nature. All products use authentic Ayurvedic recipes and honestly-sourced natural, organic ingredients that do no harm, only good.

    1. Yes I have heard and tried Soultree Products. I love them a lot. In fact I posted a similar review post on Soultree. You can check it out here http://thebeautyinsideout.com/soultree-products-review/
